Investigating his new business incognito, billionaire F. W. Shanley--aka Red--is turned on by Vicki's fiery personality and undeniable beauty. When he discovers her reading a BDSM novel on her eReader, he knows he's found a woman who shares his desires and promises to be a challenging submissive.
When Red arranges a weekend at a secluded hotel, Vicki agrees to indulge in no-strings-attached erotic fun. But can she commit to this kind of life with Red when he realizes they can have so much more?

INTIMATE EXPOSURE is thrillingly hot and intimate and exposes the characters' deepest desires.
Sparks fly between Red Webster and Vicki Renard; the man just seems unable to leave her alone. He rouses all her secret desires and wants, and he makes her want to submit to his dominant personality. When they both win a weekend getaway, will Vicki allow herself to be dominated and let him fulfil her secret needs or would she walk away from what she could have?
INTIMATE EXPOSURE explores Vicki's and Red's relationship, as they moved from flirting to seduction to Domination/submission. Vicki's willing submission and the pleasure she derived from it all touched parts of Red that he thought long dead and would never be fulfilled. He'd resigned himself to performing the acts without his feelings being involved, but Vicki was able to get under his skin. Can he believe that he might have a forever with her?
Hot, hot, hot! How could this story help but be, with a title like that? There was also bondage and hard spanking, and I have to admit it disturbed me a bit, as I cringed instead of melting into a gooey aroused mess. Note though that I don't usually read BDSM novels, so that could just be me. Vicki was certainly aroused, and one can see that she wanted more.
However, aside from that and the sexy hotness, one can see the change and growth the characters of Vicki and Red went through, and how each scene, each encounter just brought them closer to each other. Their relationship developed over the course of the story. I like that Vicki's smart, that she figured out things Red had been keeping from her from the clues he'd dropped.
The author wrote a solid story, and combined with the extreme hotness, the story just explodes. I like how she avoided the typical scenario of outraged heroine over the revelation of the hero's deceit (more of omission, really), and the ending left me pleasantly surprised. Very refreshing and a perfect ending to the story.
